ROYAL OAKS (CBS SF) — A seventh abandon puppy has been found at a plastics recycling plant in Royal Oaks, according to the Monterey County SPCA.

Humane officers previously found six puppies abandoned near a fence off Live Oak Road on Nov. 16.

A news team returned to that area Wednesday and discovered another puppy.

SPCA officials said they believe that the new puppy, now named “Felix” is part of the same litter that was found last week.

They said that Felix was very clean when he was found, leading officials to believe that he was abandoned there very recently.

The other puppies in the litter were hungry, dehydrated, flea-infested and suffering from foxtails and worms when they were found.

Based on tire tracks nearby, officials believe that someone drove to the fence line and tossed the puppies over.

The SPCA is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the discovery of the suspect that abandoned the puppies.

Meanwhile, many animal lovers have offered to take in the abandoned puppies, and the list of potential adopters is currently over 100 names long.
